Silence the music

by Susana Alarcon

 

I know that kind of half of my posts have been about the use of silence and imagination, but here I go again pointing out it.

“It is not good to decorate images with too much music when the images themselves have sufficient content to awake audience’s imaginations intensively. ”

Toru Takemitsu.

Even in silly fashion, interiors, products,… designer stuff, we know sometimes less is MORE.

I guess the difficult part in it would be to learn when to say “that’s too much” and to appreciate the focus on the other media (visuals) in the play. A powerful image, lightly or even lacking of sound (either sfxs, music, or both) can trigger audience’s mind and boost the story.
